Is it a diet? A religion? A lifestyle? A cult?
This word has been very controversial in the last few years.
Creating cognitive dissonance or making people angry.
What is the reason for this outrage?
Veganism is the practice of minimizing harm to animals and abstaining from the use of animal products.
A vegan does not eat meat, eggs, or dairy products. A vegan does not wear clothing made from an animal (leather, wool, silk, goose feather, or fur). A vegan chooses not to support a place where animals are used for human entertainment (zoos, circus, and aquariums). A vegan cares about the planet and does their best to contribute towards creating a sustainable future, by recycling, reducing the use of plastics, wasted water, and energy.
Yes, this is not a simple task in modern society. We live in an era of consumption and waste. Unfortunately, a majority of the tie we do not even fully understand the repercussions and how this can affect our everyday lives.
The issue is lack of information. Information about where our food comes from, how our clothing is made, what is really happening behind the scenes?
Travel diaries can be about different aspects of a trip.
I don’t just want to help future travellers with tips about great vegan eats and awesome spots to visit worldwide. I also have the moral responsibility to raise awareness about what happens to animals in countries with different cultures.
For our third week we have flown to Palawan Island. O-M-G what a paradise!
Unfortunately only spent a night in Puerto Princesa due to a flight cancellation that has costed us a lot in terms of money and time. So we had to give a miss to the Underground River (a good reason to come back..).
Second week in the Philippines mainly spent on Siargao Island.
Very different from Bohol and Cebu, the north part of the island is absolutely non touristic. Most of the visitors choose this place for surfing, so the most popular towns are General Luna and Cloud 9, only 10minutes drive form each other.
Best way to visit the island is by renting a motorbike and just randomly explore! You will find hidden beaches everywhere with crystal water.
Next stop: Cebu City!
(via Ferry from Tagbilaran Port –> 2hours for 520 php + 100 php for the luggage)
Unfortunately only for a couple of days, but enough to try few vegan restaurants and to visit one of the most beautiful spots ever!
Yes I’m talking about the Kawasan Falls.
Waking up with the sound of hundreds of farm animals coming from all around the island.
This is what happens in Panglao, Philippines.
And this is how I would like to start my Vegan travel diary about this new adventure.
Sitting on my balcony overlooking the sea, with my laptop and the sun rising just next to me.
Could I ask for a better office view?
